- data about your online activities within a certain period of time and on third-party websites or other online services (behavioural tracking).

The automatic collection of this data helps us to maintain and improve our website. It also allows us to check system and server integrity, and to provide you with a more personalised service. We collect this data automatically using cookies. You will find more information about this in this privacy statement.

6. What do we use your data for?

We collect and use your personal data to deliver the information, services and services you have requested, to administer the website and to make the app work. We may also use your personal data to inform you of our services through our newsletter. We may also use your personal data to conduct research and analysis in order to improve both our website and our services.

We also processes your personal data for the following purposes:
- to allow you to create an account;
- to place and process an order;
- to process your payment;
- to deliver goods to you;
- to be able to call or email you if this is necessary to carry out our services;
- to inform you of changes to our services and products;
- consider your application for a vacancy when you apply for a job with us;
- to market related communications via Google and Social Media if you have given us permission to do so;
- to identify your interests so that we can market to you personally based on the data processed;
- to make the app work, to send push notifications and to enable sharing of scores on Social media.

We need a legal basis to process your personal data. We will process your personal data based on processing grounds such as:

- Performance of a contract. For example, to fulfil an order you have placed on our website, we may need to process your payment details, as well as your contact and shipping details and information about your purchase;
- Legal requirement. Certain laws and/or regulations may require us to collect and retain information for a certain period of time for tax purposes, or to prevent fraud and other illegal activities;
- Permission. For example, when you choose to receive mail marketing, you consent to us processing your email address and/or contact details to send you emails about special offers and sales, product launches. In the case of consent, you have the right to withdraw it at any time.

We may also process your personal data for our legitimate interests. These interests include, but are not limited to:

- researching and analysing the products and services our customers want;
- researching, measuring and analysing the effectiveness of marketing techniques;
- soliciting customer feedback on product satisfaction;
- personalising our offers and website for a better experience; and/or
- keeping our website safe and secure.

7. How long do we keep your data?

We keep your personal data for as long as we are required to do so by law and for as long as necessary for the purpose for which we use your data. For example, as long as you are a customer with us, we store your data according to the statutory retention period of seven years. After that, we only keep your data for statistical purposes and to handle any complaints or legal matters. If you want to know more about how long we store specific data about you, please contact us.

8. Who do we share your data with?

We only process your personal data ourselves. We don’t share, sell or trade your personal data to other parties.

However, the personal data you provide may in some cases be processed by third parties. We only share the data necessary for the task performed for us by the external service provider. The personal data you provide may be transferred to the following third parties:
- payment services, collection agencies and credit reference agencies;
- ICT service providers such as hosting providers and website developers;
- advertising and marketing partners;
- logistics companies;
- government.

These third parties are bound by contractual and other legal obligations to treat your personal data confidentially and to respect your privacy. They therefore only have access to the personal data they need to carry out their work. If required, we will enter into a processing agreement with these third parties.

Sometimes we need to transfer personal data to the government. This may occur first of all if certain government institutions need this data for the performance of their tasks, such as the tax authorities. The police or judiciary may also need certain data in case of fraud or abuse. Finally, certain regulators may access personal data in the context of an investigation.

9. Storing of your personal data

The starting point for the storage of personal data is that all data should not be kept longer than necessary. We will therefore store personal data no longer than strictly necessary to realise the purposes for which the data are collected. Exceptions to this are data that we need to keep for longer because the law requires us to do so.

We process your data within the European Economic Area. This means that we also store your data within the EEA. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact us.

10. How safe is your data with us?

We have done a lot to protect your data as well as possible, both organisationally and technically. We have secured our systems and various means of communication to ensure that your data does not end up in the hands of others. Your data is therefore safe with us. We also ensure that your data is only used by people who have received permission from us. If you have any questions about the specific method of securing or if you have the impression that your data is not properly secured or there are indications of misuse, please contact us.

11. Cookies

We use functional cookies for the technical operation of the website. If consent is given, we also use analytical, advertising and social media cookies. If you do not give permission then ads will still be shown, but they will be random ads. The analytical cookies are used to determine anonymously how our users use the website. The advertising and social media cookies are used for marketing purposes.

The cookies we use are necessary for the technical functioning of the website and your ease of use. They ensure that the website works properly and, for example, remember your preferences. They also allow us to optimise our website.

Google Analytics

Our website also places cookies from the US company Google, as part of its "Analytics" service. We use this service to track and get reports on how visitors use the website, measure interest, and improve the services we offer both to our customers and users. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so, or insofar as these third parties process the data on Google's behalf. We have no influence on this.

You can opt out of cookies by setting your internet browser to stop storing cookies. In addition, you can also manage any information previously stored via your browser settings.

13. Social media buttons

Our website may include buttons to share pages on social media platforms such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram. These buttons are pieces of code from the social media itself and use a cookie.

To see what they do with personal data they receive with this code, you can see the relevant privacy statements on their own websites.

14. What rules apply to this privacy statement?

15. What do we do with data of minors

We do not target minors with our website or as an organisation. This means that if you are under the age of 18, you need permission from a parent or guardian to use our website. If you are a minor when you visit our website or webshop, we assume that you have received this permission before your visit.
